Following speculation throughout the weekend, a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) version of Instagram has launched on the Windows Store. The application is evidently an iOS port, which was ported over using Facebook’s “Osmeta” tools, which the firm obtained a couple of years ago.

For those wants to use the beta release, the following issues are found: Facebook login doesn’t work, “Share to” functionality isn’t working, and a few issues are causing stability issues, for example, crashing.

As this version of Instagram was likely ported from iOS it brings a not too bad measure of features with it, for example,

  • Editing photographs with free, custom-designed filters.
  • Enhance photographs with instruments to change brightness, contrast and saturation as well as shadows, highlights and perspective.
  • Find suggested people to follow, based on current memberships and contents you like.
  • Send private photographs and video messages directly to friends.

Despite being labeled as a Universal Windows Platform application, it is presently available for mobile gadgets.
